Last year I had terrible flies... for no good reason. They were everywhere. I had bought a couple venus fly traps to put up by the pond but in the day that they were sitting in my kitchen, they'd snapped up a whole bunch of flies. It was amazing. They're still in my kitchen this year... with new "traps" and catching whatever flies are foolish enough to get too close! :D

Yes I have one of the bats too. I got it on ebay and its called the Exterminator. Its shaped like a racket and you touch the button and you can get the wee ******* even in flight. It is the best thing I have ever bought. It works on spiders, flies, wasps... you name it. Just keep it up high away from kids, it will give them a good old bolt. ! ! !

LOL....Sarah-Jayne you had me chuckling and imagining all the flies dive-bombing you in your orange overall.
Seriously hun, it wasnt fun lol. Everytime I thought I got rid of the little blighters, they can back with vengance! I thought I would be a 'smart ass' and tie half the overalls around my waist so they would just attack my trousers but i forgot i was wearing a yellow vest top underneath and they attacked that too, so then i put the overalls back on and was itching the rest of the way because i had trapped some little sods in!

coooor.... epic post there ;)
